Memo to the Tories: Listen to the people

-

LAST Wednesday Switzerland announced that it is preparing to ban Hamas and its supporters. A law will be rushed through Parliament to provide the tools to counter any Hamas activities or support for the organisation in the country. The Federal Council considers this to be the most appropriate response to the post-October 7 situation.

At the same time Reto Nause, director of security for the City of Bern, has defended the city council’s decision not to permit any more large demonstrations in the city centre until after Christmas. He believes that, having allowed three Palestine rallies and two Israel vigils, the city has satisfied freedom of expression for the time being, and pointed out that nowhere in the constitution is it written that there is any right to take to the streets every week on the same topic with the same demands. This is in spite of concerns expressed by Amnesty International that obstructing peaceful demonstrations is a violation of human rights. 

But it comes as very good news for us, since we will spend our pre-Christmas break in Bern, and will be able to enjoy the Christmas markets, the music and celebrations at the cathedral without having to ‘watch our backs’. It might have been very different had we decided to go home to London for the festive experience. As Advent approaches, the Met police are bracing themselves for another week of pro-Palestine rallies and anti-Semitism protests. It is estimated that 1,500 officers will be needed to protect memorials and stop violent clashes.  

Met Deputy Assistant Commissioner Ade Adelekan, the Gold Commander in London for the weekend, has assured us that there is a detailed policing plan in place. Officers would enter large crowds decisively and quickly to arrest those inciting violence, terrorism, or anti-Semitism. They say they have been working positively with organisers to ensure everyone taking part clearly understands their expectations.

This is a far cry from the policing of behaviour witnessed at previous demonstrations. Protesters marching through London calling for an ‘Intifada from London to Gaza’ and chanting anti-Semitic slogans prompted furious accusations that the police are failing to do their job. Former Met detective Peter Bleksley said: ‘This is sick behaviour. The Met said they would crack down on this sort of thing, and quite simply they haven’t. It’s appalling.’

And while the UK public are concerned about excessive levels of immigration, both legal and illegal, Tory voters apparently are still reluctant to support the few politicians who are determined to do something about it, a majority supporting the sacking of Suella Braverman. Of course this raises the question of how many people still class themselves as Tory voters and whether they are representative of people who would identify as ‘conservative’ with a small c.

Ms Braverman’s unacceptable position was to state, following a Cobra meeting to discuss the accelerated threat of terrorism in Britain: ‘We’ve now seen tens of thousands of people take to the streets . . . Chanting for the erasure of Israel from the map. To my mind, there is only one way to describe those marches: they are hate marches.’ In response to this, left-liberal critics (amongst whom are many members of the Tory establishment) and voters painted her as a nasty racist. They see her as ambitious, uncaring and obnoxious. She was further accused of undermining the authority of the Prime Minister and the Metropolitan Police. 

While the UK identifies Hamas as a terrorist organisation (the BBC only very reluctantly so), it’s lagging far behind Europe in responding to the surging threat of violence and intimidation. Cosily enveloped in its human rights comfort blanket, it deems any purposeful action as ‘far right’. Meanwhile this so-called ‘far right’ is gaining ground in other European nations, including Poland, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain and resoundingly in Holland with the sensational victory of the long ‘deplored’ PVV leader Geert Wilders. Yet as Tyler Durden says, governments and establishment media are now so fanatically anti-common sense (and out of touch) that anyone who dares to simply take a contrary view is called ‘far right’, as if they are Nazis.

Now, following a mass stabbing attack where an immigrant man, allegedly Algerian, is accused of slashing five individuals near a school, including three young children, riots have broken out in Dublin. Should we be surprised? Police were assaulted, vehicles and trams were torched, and migrant accommodation was set alight. Police claimed the unrest was fuelled by ‘a complete lunatic faction driven by far-right ideology’, and the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar scolded the people he is supposed to serve, saying the rioters had brought shame on Ireland.

The patronising globalist Varadkar’s view, as writer John Carter explains, is that ‘the problem isn’t that Ireland is being flooded with unassimilable aliens, or that a child has been stabbed by one of them. No – the problem is that the Irish have a problem with this. So his solution will be to ram through draconian hate speech laws so that no one will dare to talk about it’. 

It is the Irish mixed martial artist Conor McGregor who has emerged as the spokesman for the people. He explained their fury with the authorities and police they see as failing them and responsible for the ‘people who should not even be in Ireland in the first place’. Mcgregor could not have been clearer: ‘Everything – from our lax border with gravy train benefits, to our pitiful mental health services, to our country in flames – is ON YOUR WATCH.’ All this, while the country is facing a chronic housing shortage and an ever-increasing number of refugees and asylum seekers are housed at taxpayers’ expense. For all his controversial track record of fighting and violence McGregor’s words about the real world conflict are measured and statesman-like. ‘I don’t condone, but I understand,’ he said.

The Globalists don’t. They treat people like second class citizens, deny them any meaningful vote, tax-fleece them to keep illegals in a state of unproductive dependence, silence them with hate speech censorship; and this is what you’ll get: a charismatic cage-fighter standing up to defend and lead the common man. 

Exploited and enraged, people will start to feel they have nothing more to lose. Of Ireland, McGregor claims, ‘we are at war’, 

 and as Clausewitz noted, war can be very unpredictable.

Tory supporters in the UK need to wake up. 

Update ‘Irish police are reportedly investigating Conor McGregor’s social media posts ‘amid rising concerns about the spread of hate speech online in the wake of far-Right riots in Dublin last week‘, we hear from The Telegraph. Naturally they are comments Mark Steyn.
